You either need to insist she do a makeup trial and another hair trial with the style you prefer or find another stylist/makeup artist.

I would find someone else. You should feel the most beautiful you have ever felt on the day.

What in the complete hell!?!?  How is SHE dictating your look then not giving you a makeup trial on top of that?  Is she doing this for free or something?  The style YOU chose is beautiful and you deserve it if it’s what you want. I would tell her that you are “exploring other options to ensure you get exactly the look you are going for” then find someone else!!!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek that updo is scary! Find a new hair and makeup person, bee! Politely tell the person that you’ve chosen another vendor, thank her for the opportunity to work with her, and if she presses for details, be kind but honest– she didn’t listen to you about what you wanted!

Find someone else. She is refusing to do the service you are asking for

Ps the style she gave you is dreadful compared to the style you want. Your hair is gorgeous on its on so I’m sure there are stylists capable of giving you what you want.

I would just send her a nice message that says, “Hey _name_, I just want to thank you so much for your time and efforts during my hair trial! I really enjoyed your ideas. However, a family friend has offered to do my original concept for free as a gift! So we have chosen to go that route. Hope you’re having a great week and will be sure to speak highly of your work!”…

Basically something fluffy that essentially means…I don’t like your work, you didn’t listen to me, and goodbye. Then just explan to your inlaws what happened but that you really appreciate the thought in the referral and you just feel more comfortable with a person you’ve been recommended by someone else.

soymilk:  This is perfect. Find someone who will do what you want! You don’t want to regret it or hate your photos.

As a professional MUA, this makes me cringe. You (and every other bride) deserve the peace of mind of knowing you will look exactly how YOU want to look on your wedding day, and if you want to do 5 friggin’ trials, a good stylist will happily oblige. Sorry bee, you deserve better. It’s your day, not hers. She doesn’t get to dictate to you how you’ll wear your hair, and “natural look” makeup means different things to different people!

I would politely thank her for her time and explain that you’re just looking for a different vibe. Also thank the FIL’s for their suggestion and that you appreciate their input, but you’ve decided to go with someone else. Even if they’re offended, they’ll get over it….its worth you NOT looking back on your wedding photos for the rest of your life and hating how you looked.

Oh my God, what am I even looking at? She is (technically) a professional, I’d just tell her you’ve decided to go for a different style and will no longer be contracting her services for the wedding. I mean, she refused to do a make-up trial or anything you wanted, she did this to herself.

That updo is insult to updos. I don’t know what she did but she definitly can’t call it an updo. Find another stylist ASAP. Tell her you appreciate the work she did, but it’s not the look youre going for. If she’s a professional, she will get over it. Honestly, if she is offended, good, because she needs a little tough love.

I think you should thank her for her time, but be honest and ell her that you didn’t like it (constructivly). That updo isn’t even in the same ball park as the inspiration photo. If you havn’t made a deposit, find someone else.
